Hi, my google drive link doesn’t seem to include this version. Can I get an updated link?
Jar Jar Bricks said:
For my “sign in” slot I’d ideally like to have AI Benicio Del Toro say the following: “Libertine, standing by. Living free, joining up!”
The Libertine is the ship DJ and gang stole in TLJ and I’d love to see some redemption for his character in this film even if its more of an easter egg. The second part is the inverse of his signature phrase: “Live free, don’t join.”
Speaking of characters getting redemption via cameos, would it be too over-the-top to suggest that Jar Jar himself showed up at the battle? Cause he has a lot of dialogue from Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and I think it could be a fun easter egg.
When the fleet first shows up he could say “Jar Jar Binks here to helps” (from 0:40) and then maybe when a Star Destroyer blows up he could say “Meesa good at dis!” (from 1:59).
I would suggest “Lightspeed-Ram” as that would come much closer to matching the lip movements.
Replace the opening crawls with narration by Philomena Cunk.
“The Death Star was destroyed just 4 years before the release of unrelated Ortolan jizz anthem, Lapti Nek.”
I thought episode 2 was pretty good. The pacing was weird when it started to focus on Bo-Katan but I liked seeing Grogu do some stuff on his own - it actually reminded me a lot of the game Stray. Also that ending did a way better job getting me excited for the rest of the season than episode 1’s did.
In addition to the Wilhelm scream, have the Spongebob Squarepants “My Leg” scream play in the background of every movie.
I’m torn between liking this one and hating it: In the flashbacks of TLJ, Luke isn’t shown trying to kill Ben with a lightsaber, instead he appears to be trying to smother Ben with a pillow. Luke then explains he had a vision of Ben hiding some forbidden artifact under his pillow so he went to investigate and that’s why he was holding the pillow (there was no artifact, it’s implied the vision was sent to him by Palpatine).
The Lego Star Wars Holiday Specials are not non-canonical spinoffs of the live-action movies but are instead spinoffs of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and canon to that game’s timeline.
Threepio says “we surrender” and all the stormtroopers on Endor start dying for reasons they can’t explain (it’s as if they lost the will to live).
For as long as the movie has existed, I’ve wanted to see an extended cut of The Rise of Skywalker.
Though there have been several fan edits that improve the movie’s pacing, and several that incorporate fan-made or behind-the-scenes shots, I haven’t seen anyone try to make an edit that is purely additive. That’s what I aim to do here; and, to keep it canon-compliant, I’m basing it on the film’s novelization, The Rise of Skywalker: Expanded Edition by Rae Carson.
As this edit is still a work-in-progress (I’m only up to Pasanna), I don’t have a complete list of changes, but the rules I’ve set for myself are as follows:
- Add as much to the movie as possible, as long as it doesn’t look obviously fake or contradict the book.
- Change the order of events in the film to match the order of events in the book, unless doing so creates an obvious continuity error.
- Do not remove anything from the movie unless it’s not in the book.
The sources I’m using to extend the movie include:
- Hal9000’s TROS editing resource pack
- The Disney+ series “Star Wars: Vehicle Flythroughs”
- Various behind-the-scenes VFX clips which feature slightly-longer versions of some of the film’s CG shots
- This fan-made Battlefront 2 Cinematic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bNND_yM90Q&lc=UgwhaMnLAWjexJPTAhl4AaABAg.9di9u3ZVxOz9dmztHl9HJa&ab_channel=RogueSithShortFilms
- Slowing down shots with optical flow, wherever possible.
This isn’t really an idea, but does anyone know where one could find an HD version of this tv spot?
For anyone interested in opening the movie with Kylo’s vision I altered the Star Destroyer Vehicle Flythroughs opening to start from a freeze frame so that it can more easily be placed after a title crawl:
Also, sorry to be pedantic but “Bounty Hunter Pursuit” was the name of the Lego set (and later, level in Lego Star Wars TCS) based on that AOTC scene; the song itself is “Zam the Assassin/Chase Through Coruscant.” While there is a song on the soundtrack called “Bounty Hunter’s Pursuit” it’s what plays during the asteroid field chase.
I just noticed that in the book, Palpatine’s line “Your master, Luke Skywalker, was saved by his father. The only family you have here is me” is actually “I’ve made this very proposal before. But on that unfortunate day Luke Skywalker had his father to save him. You do not.” And I was thinking, because he says the line “I’ve died before” earlier in the movie, would it be too hard to mix together the rest of the sentence, or something close to it? Because not only do I like this version better, but if we could then it would be possible to remove Rey saying “my parents were strong, they saved me from you” and still have the conversation flow rather naturally. It would go something like:
R: All you want is for me to hate but I won’t. Not even you.
P: I’ve made this proposal before. On that day, Luke Skywalker was saved by his father. The only family you have here… is me.
Personally, I prefer the shuttle because it means Ben, the last Skywalker, uses a ship associated with Palpatine while Rey, the (ex?)Palpatine, uses a ship that belonged to Luke Skywalker.
I’d heard about this edit before, but only recently looked into it and realized how “radical” it is! Can I get a link?
It’s not working. I tried it with the Rise of Skywalker soundtrack but couldn’t get it to sync up, so I tried use a bit of audio from The Last Jedi and then that same bit of audio (2:00:01 - 2:05:46) from the score-only version of the movie. That also didn’t work, I think because the sound is mixed differently so the music is at different amplitudes in the movie?
If you do keep the line, it might help clarify if the captions put “conjured” in quotes.
The method you suggested in the original post - using an identical recording of the music and inverting it to get rid of the music - could that theoretically be done with The Rise of Skywalker’s Awards soundtrack, since it contains the music used in the final cut of the film?
The Force can’t allow people to detect blood relationships. Vader found out Luke had a sister by reading Luke’s mind, and Leia found out Rey was a Palpatine because Maz figured it out and told her.
Does anyone have a downloadable version of the version of the TROS Ahch-To sequence that was modified to take place at night?
I mean, he’s arguably the most literally-a-professional person here…
Replace all of the soundtrack with Spongebob music.
I’d kill for duel of the fates with grass skirt chase
This will begin to make things right.
Maybe he doesn’t roar at all; maybe he does an Anakin Skywalker impression to scare them off.
I feel like the clothes would be a lot harder than faces, though. I’m not pretending to have any idea how deepfaking works, but the fact that there are plenty of videos on Youtube successfully replacing people’s faces and not people’s outfits makes me feel like clothes would be harder to change with current technology.
Also, a lot of the visual spectacle gets lost in compression because of the constant particle effects.
